BioWare would “love to revisit” the Jade Empire franchise

BioWare lead designer Mike Laidlaw has said that the developer would love to revisit the Jade Empire franchise someday.

Speaking with Strategy Informer, Laidlaw mentioned that the game was a favorite among those at BioWare.

“We will certainly announce it if it’s going to be coming out,” he said. “At this point, Jade Empire is a staff favorite and a lot of us love it, so we’d love to revisit it at some point.

“But right now, we are very focused on Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2.”

We wouldn’t mind another Jade Empire, we reckon. This time around, maybe you could have a tent party with Dawn Star, Silk Fox and Sky at the same time on the eve of battle.

    i think the game was about 20hrs long, which is short for rpg, but it was a very awesome 20hrs, could have been better if they had a new game+ feature like ME had where you could play the game again with a buffed out character

    Please don’t, BioWare. It’s probably the only bad game you’ve ever made.

    Yeah I agree. Jade Empire was the only bioware game I was disappointed with. When you’ve got franchises like Mass Effect, Dragon Age and The Old Republic, you really don’t need too continue with Jade Empire.

    Personally i’d buy a sequal tomorrow . Jade Empire was fresh and engaging, The storyline and setting was spot with some great charecters (John Cleese as a muskeet weilding knight and the drunken bum who needs beer to fight stick in my mind) . Can’t see where the bashing is coming from? Mybe it should have had Lightsabre’s or dwarfs or something?
